Getting data from web table

Good evening! 

Thanks in advance for your help! I have a question, I want to build a dashboard that feeds from Statistics Canada tables, I thought I would be able to pull the tables via "web" but I was wondering if you recomend other ways to import the data tables and if this tables will be updated automatically as the site updates their numbers? An example of the table I want to pull is this one: 

 

https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/t1/tbl1/en/tv.action?pid=1710000901

 

There are some CSV options, but if I import via CSV I would have to update and re source the files every Quarter they release information? 

 

Thank you!

If you go for the CSV option, your data will be offline and you will have to import again.

The best option is the Web Connector. You can set up a Gateway and schedule auto-refresh based on the data update frequency on the web site.
